The 326ce, the latest Grand Symphony model to sport Taylor's innovative soundport cutaway, boasts warmth and tonal balance in equal measure thanks to mahogany's natural compression effect and midrange punch. Back and sides of responsibly sourced Urban Ash yield a tonal response akin to high-quality Honduran mahogany, with a neo-tropical mahogany top that emphasizes a fundamental strong quality. V-Class™ bracing pumps up the volume and enhances the pitch accuracy up and down the neck, while the soundport cutaway adds a completely new tonal dimension, producing an immersive sound that fills any room hard shell case with fluid, high-fidelity detail and rich sustain - a truly "symphonic" listening experience that lives up to the body style's name. Specs include a 24-7/8" scale length, 1-3/4" nut width, and lightgauge strings.
Appointments support a dusky aesthetic, with an Urban Sienna colour treatment for the top, back, sides and neck, shaded edgeburst top, and 5-mil satin-finish body. Other details include Urban Ash for the soundport's cutaway cap, Taylor satin black tuners, a three ring rosette, black binding, Gemstone fretboard/peghead inlays in Italian acrylic and a black pickguard. It ships with built-in ES2 electronics in a deluxe Taylor hardshell case.
